Extending your home

Vernacular Homes Ltd is a company with expertise and experience in building extensions in Kent and East Sussex. We can extend your existing properties such as your home, garage and other buildings.

Along with our role as new bespoke house builders in Kent and the East Sussex area and barn conversions in Kent and Sussex too, Vernacular Homes Ltd is also a company with expertise and experience in building extensions for many different types of home. We can extend your existing home, convert your garage and create ancillary accommodation.

Extending and improving a building is a tradition as old as building itself. A building is not a rigid box but a dynamic and extensible space defined by the people who live in it. It is a space which can be adapted to meet new family or lifestyle changes. Vernacular Homes Ltd is experienced in adapting these spaces whether they require small or large scale alterations.

Our experience covers extensions to bathrooms and kitchens as well as additions of sunrooms or additional living space. More ambitious designs have included the addition of whole new wings, new link buildings, orangery construction and significant remodelling.

Design & Planning for Extensions

Vernacular Homes is able to work with both architects and its own in-house design team on the design and planning elements of an extension project. Extending requires careful consideration of the existing building/dwelling and how the new addition relates both in appearance and in terms of structure. These considerations are all the more key when working with listed buildings and negotiating the requirements of listed building consent.

We can help guide you through the planning process designing sympathetic extensions to existing properties, our portfolio of projects encompass many different styles and periods of properties.

We are always on the look out for imaginative solutions to design problems and often we are able to advise on how existing spaces can be reconfigured if this would enhance a property and make an extension do more for less.

Building an Extension

During a project we regularly communicate through site meetings and other forms of contact to keep clients and architects informed about the progress of works and to enable decision making. Our projects are carefully managed by a dedicated team of professionals in the office and on site who are responsible for supervising the progress of the building works.

Re-imagining your home


Re-imagining your home

Extensions offer the possibility to make better use of a home. Not only through creating additional space for specific activities but also unifying existing spaces in new ways. Extending can present the opportunity to sort out circulation within a building. The external face of an extension can also create a new relationship of the building with the landscape.

Sun Rooms and Orangery Extensions

Sun Rooms And Orangeries

Sun Rooms and Orangery Extensions

One of the most popular rooms which clients desire to create within schemes for extension and renovation is the sun room or orangery.

A sunroom or orangery is a very light airy space but with more wall and ceiling than a conservatory meaning that the interior temperature can be regulated creating a comfortable and usable space.

Large patio or folding doors typically give level access to an external terrace.
Vernacular Homes have built several sunrooms and orangeries of various sizes and styles.
